WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE WHO HAS A JEZEBEL AND JUDAS SPIRIT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4237 2.jpgIf you have loved anyone who ever had a Jezebel or a Judas spirit, I have great sympathy for you.  And I use the word love, for I could be talking about a lover, or a friend.

The example, I am going to use is in friendship, and only friendship.  Because I have not seen it in family, and I pray I never do.

Let me try and explain what this is first.  So you can understand.  

A Jezebel spirit, is someone who is not loyal.  Its someone, who has a whorish spirit.  I would even venture to say, someone who is very vain.  Very self-centered.  Narcissistic. Someone who tries to impress others.  But behind the scenes, pits one against another.  Instigating….

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JEZEBEL HEARD THAT NABOTH WAS STONED, AND WAS DEAD, THAT JEZEBEL SAID TO AHAB, ARISE TAKE POSSESSION OF THE VINEYARD OF NABOTH THE JEZREELITE, WHICH HE REFUSED TO GIVE THEE FOR MONEY, FOR NABOTH IS NOT ALIVE BUT DEAD.  I KINGS 21:15 KING JAMES. 

The Jezebel spirit, is someone who plays the victim.  Never accountable.  Makes excuses, and this last thing, sadly, I see is someone who initiates witchcraft.  Or who makes friends with someone who has satanic ties.  Not good.

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JORAM SAW JEHU, THAT HE SAID, IS IT PEACE, JEHU?  AND HE ANSWERED, WHAT PEACE, SO LONG AS THE WHOREDOMS OF THY MOTHER JEZEBEL AND HER WITCHCRAFTS ARE SO MANY?  II KINGS 9:22.  KJV.  

All of these things God abhors.  You may see all or some of these characteristics.  

The Judas spirit, is someone who will betray you.  As Christ knew.  Someone, who will not be loyal to you.  Someone who will be a false witness.  Someone, who will drop you, and not stand by you.  Someone who will be used by the devil.

AND SUPPER BEING ENDED, THE DEVIL HAVING NOW PUT INTO THE HEART OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, SIMONS SON, TO BETRAY HIM.  MARK 14:10  KJV.  

The love for money, also caused Judas to betray Christ.  So if you see a love for money, from someone, beware.  

AND SAID UNTO THEM, WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME, AND I WILL DELIVER HIM UNTO YOU?  AND THEY “COVENANTED” WITH HIM FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER.  MATTHEW 26:15  KJV.  

Judas, who was supposed to be Christs friend, could have repented of his sins, toward Christ.  He gave Christ the Judas kiss.  As if to say, my kiss, is enough to betray you.  Accept it.  

BUT JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, JUDAS BETRAYEST THOU THE SON OF MAN WITH A KISS?  LUKE 22;48  KJV.  

But Judas was not accountable.  He did not repent. Christ would have forgave him, even at the cross, but he never went to the cross, instead he took his own life.  

Pride…. One can see that.  Pride is always evident when folks, make excuses, or is not apologetic, or accountable. 

I think you might get the drift of this.  So, let me just say, its hard to love folks, when you see these characteristics.  

But yet you do.  Or you can fall victim of that.  Love can cause one to sin.  Love can make one blind.  Even in friendship.  

This is why love of anything besides Christ, can become an idol.  And you have to be careful of this.  Love of money, with secret jealousies, that reveal the truth about a person.  

Because all of those things I express, can not only be a betrayal to you.  But to God.  If you only knew how jealous God is.  How He hates for any of us to wander off, and seek other entities.  

Folks, if you are not reading your KJV bibles, and seeing what God hates, you are doing your own soul, a disservice. I know.  The hard way.  If I can spare any soul, curses, or pain, or sorrow, yes I will.  And God knows that.  

God is not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  And why would anyone want to sow, into things from the enemy?  Choosing to walk out of love, in friendship of Christ.  When KJV scripture says, “a friend loves at all times.”  See KJV Proverbs 17:17

And well, one may see an alliance, which could also be a “covenant” with someone, who does have satanic ties.

THOU SHALT MAKE NO COVENANT WITH THEM, NOR WITH THEIR GODS.  EXODUS 23:32 KJV.  

Social media is very revealing, about folks.  And their friends….

If you are truly a Christian why would anyone want to follow someone on social media, who has ties to satan?  Thats making a covenant with them if you follow them.  Because you like that?  Why? I suppose one would need to ask themselves.  Yet God hates it.  No thank you….I would pass on that quickly.  And I have….

NOTWITHSTANDING I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST THEE, BECAUSE THOU SUFFEREST THAT WOMAN JEZEBEL, WHICH CALLETH HERSELF A PROPHETESS, TO TEACH AND TO SEDUCE MY SERVANTS TO COMMIT FORNICATION, AND TO EAT THINGS SACRIFICED UNTO IDOLS.  AND I GAVE HER SPACE TO REPENT OF HER FORNICATION;  AND SHE REPENTED NOT.  REVELATION 2:20-21  KJV.  

Anyway….  Its easy for me to forgive someone.  To extend grace.  But when that grace is not extended in return.  It has to have some spiritual reinforcement, that does not come from Christ.  Because Christ is love.  And those spirits, can make someone do things, that goes against the spirit of Christ.  

All these little things, have made me to conclude to see a Jezebel spirit, and a Judas spirit.  This can destroy friendships.  And thats besides the point.  Know more then anything that gets God very angry.  His wrath will be revealed.  

So you have to beware of the ties you make with people. Because they can turn into soul ties.   I am older now, but wiser.  I made a lot of mistakes, and yes sins, with folks, I trusted in my youth, and even as an adult.  

But when it comes to friendship, I am hard to make friends with now, because I have seen these things in friends.  And it scares me.  To trust folks any more.  Anyway….

Sin can come in somehow.  But somethings can break chief friends.

A FROWARD MAN SOWETH STRIFE:  AND A WHISPERER SEPARATETH CHIEF FRIENDS.  

PROVERBS 16:28  KJV. 

Loyalty to God must be evident with me.  This is one thing I strive to give my Lord.  And I long from friends.  So it must be evident by others, as an indicator, so I can be friends with someone.  God has proved His loyalty to me, time and time again.  He is my example.  Not people.  

And heres a thought about loyalty….If someone, purposely makes friends with your sworn enemy, that says a lot.  That I cannot just justify as o.k. 

If you see someone who has satanic ties, it should grieve you, so much that you NOW, understood, more then ever, how much it grieves God.  And depart.  Have nothing to do with people like that.  

So one can now stay away, loyal to God.  It may make you sad, but now see it very clearly, with clarity.  

Beware of the Jezebel and Judas spirit.  Pray about it.  If you see signs, this could be God showing you.  Take heed.  

And as an added thought if you do see any of these characteristics on yourself.  Then don’t hesitate.  Make it right with God, by repenting.  And actually making it right with the person, or persons, you have hurt.

Don’t forget what happened to Jezebel, and Judas.  Their endings were not good.  And one should avoid that.  Look it up.  In a King James bible.  And again, I will reiterate.  It has to be a King James for holiness.  Other bibles are corrupted by the changing of words.

Maybe this is how you will learn.  By repenting, and researching yourself, so you can see what God truly does say, about a Jezebel and Judas Spirit.  I hope you find your way in our Lord Jesus.  Who calls us to be holy.  

And I just want to conclude my thoughts to say, I do forgive people.  I do wish people the best.  I have no ill feelings toward anyone.  Thats not who I am in Christ.  No matter how hurt I have been.  I pray, God bless people.  Lessons of life.  But, I pray not to come from a place of judging, but warning.  God sees.  And I know that.  So I say all of this in friendship and love.  But I plead the blood of Jesus, and say, no weapon formed against me will prosper.  

ISAIAH 54:17  NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGEMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN.  THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME. SAITH THE LORD.  ISAIAH 54:17  

Holy King James word. 

In Christ,

DOING THINGS “MY WAY” THE ROAD TO HELL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez”


Version 2Have you ever heard of the song, called “My Way”? It was a very popular song, when I was growing up, in the sixties, seventies, etc.  I think Paul Anka wrote it.  But old blue eyes, Frank Sinatra made it very popular.  And I think even Elvis Presley sang it.  

So, people would be singing it, but the words are very deceptive, in guiding us, because we can get mislead and try and do things our way, and that way, is a road to hell.  I wonder if they know this?  Even Paul Anka, who is still alive.  It would be nice, if what I wrote, now, would bring him closer to God to see the difference.  To know not to do things his way, but the way of Christ.  

Well, the reason, I am writing about it, is because as me and my husband were chatting about doing things our way, and seeing the difference, I told him the things, I learned doing things “my way” is the road to hell.

See, I always have to use my life, as the parallel, between what Christ has taught us, and what I have done.  And I grew up trying to do things my way.  I did have a rebellious spirit, and nature.  I did, get stubborn, and I did not grasp who I could be in Christ.  At an early age.  Even though, I was taught about Christ at an early age.  I still tried to do things my way.  

I have had poor judgment in things, and when I look back, it grieves me.  But why?  Because I tried to do things my way.  The results, were in many ways, not fruitful.  Not good, not fulfilling, in the spirit, to what I could have been.  And we do reap what we sow.  See, when you get older, you only have your life to look at, and if you see, and realize what you have done, you can make it right, if you make Christ, Lord and savior, and do things His way.  

When any of us, leave Christ out of the equation, because He is the way, the truth, and life, we miss it.  I know, because without Jesus, we are truly living life our way.

Thats nothing to be proud of.  I don’t care who you are, I don’t care what successes, you think you have, that actually may lead to more pride, thinking, you are this, that, and the other, you are not fulfilled.  Unless, you make Christ Lord and savior.  And do things His way.  

Look at this King James scripture real close, and again, I put emphasis, on the King James scriptures, because the others have been tampered with, corrupted, and are misleading.  So don’t look at those verses.  Look at what Christ, has made holy, and use word, that is Holy, as “His Way.”

But this scripture reminds us, Christ reminds us:

JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE:  NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.  JOHN 14:6.  HOLY KING JAMES BIBLE.  

Even many, who teach Christ as Lord, and savior, and I pray, this is never me, but, you can form a sense of “religion” (rules, regulations, traditions, rituals, that are made by men, and groups) and you can depart from the true spirit, of who you are meant to be in Christ, and fail.  By religion.  Develop your relationship.  

But, you will fail.  By doing things your way.  Even in the name of the Lord.  Because you are doing things your way, by the spirit, and not by Christ, as His spirit, as the guide.  

We have to look deeper at our souls, and the fruit, and we have to identify, with the help of God, to see; Are we doing things our way, or as Christ as the way, the truth, and life?  I get those checks often in my spirit, and in fact, last night, I had a strange dream of sin.  

And when I woke up, I bound it, immediately, I repented, and I cried out to God, and prayed, that sin, is not in my heart.  And if it is there, I ask God to remove it.  See, sin, is a departure of who God is, and His ways, and whatever it is, you may choose to do your way, is not His way, and His truth, and His life.  That you could have.  I never want to be away from God, I remember when I was in sin, and those were the darkest, most depressing days of my life.  

You don’t want sin, in your life.  Sin, will mislead you.  Sin, will corrupt your soul.  Sin, will destroy, the life, you could have with God, if you choose sin, and choose to do things your way, over doing things His way.  Hell on earth is possible, I know.  It will affect your thinking to think you are right, and Gods ways are wrong.  I have seen some folks, think like this, and no wonder the Bible calls them fools.  

The bottom line, is and this should give you the “fear of God” which is very healthy, is that we all will stand before God.  Let me repeat that”  WE ALL WILL STAND BEFORE GOD.  And if you think you get away with things, now, you won’t get away with it, when you stand before God.  When you die. The books will be opened, and everything you allowed, you did, thought of, will be revealed.  That scares me.  Because of Gods judgment.  His ways.  Which are of excellence.  

And I guess, I have grown enough, though, now, to see the difference.  Which I did not, but I realize, if I had not brought it all to the obedience of Christ, if I had continued to live life my way, I might not even be alive right now.  I had some very destructive tendencies, even in my health, that I thank God, these things were not meant to destroy me, because I accepted Christ as my Lord and savior.  And I was delivered from my way.  By accepting His way.  No weapon formed against me, prospered.  Read Isaiah 54:17 King James.  

See life, is a journey, and you can grow, you can be the best you can be in God, by His ways.  But if you depart from those ways, you become your own enemy.  You can get so full of yourself, and puffed up, because the deception is there folks.  Don’t fool yourself.  There is a devil, and his main goal, is to steal your soul.  Take your crown.  He wants to corrupt you, he wants you to miss Gods ways, and do things the way of him, which will lead you right to hell.  You have to see it.  If you don’t you will only have yourself to blame.  

This is why, submitting to God is so important.  Bringing it to the obedience of Christ.  Because if you submit to God, you are telling God, I want your way, not my way.  When you see you need to bring it all to the obedience of Christ, you are telling Him, Lord, I love you so much, that I don’t want anything or to do anything, that displeases you.   Here are some King James scriptures that will enlighten your thoughts on this, about doing things His way.  

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD.  RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  DRAW NEAR TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU.  CLEANSE YOUR HANDS YE SINNERS; AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS , YE DOUBLE MINDED.  JAMES 4:7-8.  KING JAMES.  

See how important submitting to God is?  When you do so, it is easier, to resist the devil so he can flee from you.  Getting close to God, makes Him closer to you, so you can be cleansed, and get rid of that double minded thinking.  You get rid of the devil.  

Also please read I Peter 5:5, which talks about submitting to one another, but see the end of this in this verse…..BE CLOTHED WITH HUMILITY:  FOR GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD AND GIVETH GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.  If we are humble, we know God will give us grace.  But He resists the PROUD. Don’t be proud.  If you see that in you, repent and run to the throne of God, and ask Him for help.   

CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.  II CORINTHIANS 10:5.  HOLY KING JAMES.

In that verse, above, do we see that doing things our way, exalts itself against the knowledge of God?  Thats dangerous, and disobedience.   That is doing things our way, that leads to hell.  

I Peter 1:2  ELECT ACCORDING TO THE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD THE FATHER, THROUGH SANCTIFICATION OF THE SPIRIT, UNTO OBEDIENCE AND SPRINKLING OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST:  GRACE UNTO YOU, AND PEACE, BE MULTIPLIED.  

Obedience, and the sprinkling of the blood, sanctifies us, and then there is grace, and peace given to us.  Its actually multiplied.  And it is.  Because there is no peace to the wicked.  Look that verse up.  On your own.  In a King James bible.  

And that my friend is a beautiful thing.  Knowing what Christ did for us.  And to want to be obedient to Him.  In His sight, I am sure.  But you have to repent, you have to make sure, you are trying to do things His way, not yours.  This is where the discernment will come in by the Holy Spirit.  Bringing everything to the obedience of Christ.  It will teach you, how to do things His way.  It will prompt you, remind you, give you wisdom, and guidance, so that you can understand, that in order to please Him, and fulfill your own life, it must be by doing things His way.  

Get rid of that stinking thinking!  Believe me we all can get it, and when its there, its pride.  You don’t want that.  Pride can be the downfall of many.  But we have to be mindful of who Christ is.  

The other day, I got into a strange conversation with someone, who was trying to say, I was rejecting word, when all I was saying is look to Jesus.  The word wasn’t even there, it was implying about word....Look at Him.  See word, if its not King James word, can be misinterpreted in the spirit, but if we always look at who Jesus is, there is no deception.  And this may be too deep to comprehend by some, but God knows our hearts.  He knows what we are capable of.  So if we are just obedient to Him, in small ways, including by using only King James words, we can grasp the rest of it. 

I feel very humbled this morning, as I write.  I feel though, very thoughtful, to want to please God, to want to do things His way.  See, doing things His way, always produces fruit.  Good fruit.  And even as I write, I realize, I want to please God.  I don’t want sin, that is produced by doing things my way.  I want the way of Christ.  Because He is the way, the truth, and life.  And no one can come to God, but through Christ.

So, as I close, let me offer the solution.  Repent to God, for your sins.  Make Christ your Lord and savior.  Remind yourself what Christ did on the cross for you.  Get a King James bible, read it daily.  Confess to others, Christ is your Lord and savior.  Live for Christ, since He died for you.  Because He made the way, for you, in truth, for your life, you can be promised eternal salvation.   Don’t forget to repent even daily.  See we blow it.  I know.  But keep trying.  Through Christ as the way.  

Blessings, in Christ, Elena Ramirez 

 

 

UNDERSTANDING WHY MANY ARE TURNED OFF WITH RELIGION ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2If I was searching for religion, I would want truth.  I would want something, that would bring me closer to God.  So, I could understand myself, others, life, how to grow, how to love others, how to know what God wants.  How to survive.  

More then anything how to thrive in life.    

There are so many reasons, to search in our spirituality, and to try and tap into religion, but I see, and I understand, why so many are turned off with religion.  

Or how some get misled.  Or fall into cults.  Being gullible, wanting God, and believing those who say they know Him.  Yet they get misled.  

First of all lets just define what religion is, or what it is to me since, I am writing this:

Religion, is rules, regulations, rituals, traditions made by men and groups.  These rules, regulations, are determined and maintained, by these people, without always having the benefit of truth, from say, a King James bible.  

Its not really based on truth, or what God says, but what this group, or people, or persons have determined as truth, and has nothing to do with real relationship with God, through Jesus Christ.  

These people leave out one great element, and that is love.  Not the fleshy kind of love, from lust.  I am talking about holy love.  Love that comes from loving God first, then by love for Gods truth, His commandments.  And just Him.  And loving others.  Strange how they leave that love out.  And that it is a commandment.  They leave it out.  They say mean spirited things, that don’t sound like that love.  You have to listen carefully.  

The sad thing though, is many claim they do.  They claim this is what God wants, or they claim this is what they believe scriptures say.  They twist, manipulate scriptures, and either corrupt the truth, to base their thoughts on.  But their is an element of deceit, in how they discern, or understand, what the scriptures say.  They put their own slant on it, and thereby corrupting what the truth is.  They pick and choose.  

Beware of those who flatter, or tickle your ears, and don’t give complete truth.  You need to know what the hell and brimstone message is, so you can repent, and get right with God.  

Many churches, false leaders do not teach the fear of God.  Nor do they teach what scriptures say about the consequences of sin.  That there is a price to be paid, if one is not right with God, and that hell is the sinners destination.  

YE SERPENTS YE GENERATION OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL?  MATTHEW 23:33 KJV.  

Its here in the King James scriptures, in many other places, of this bible, and if you are not seeing scriptures on hell, in your corrupt revision.  It could be you are not seeing it from a King James bible.  GET A KING JAMES BIBLE.  Its holy, and we are commanded anyway not to change it, so that means not using something that has been changed.  

If you are not hearing that message clearly, at church, that is a spirit of religion, and I would leave that church.  A true pastor will not only warn his parishioners about hell, but he will love them from the pulpit, like Christ would.    Like a true shepherd, as Christ is.  

I just saw a movie on Netflix, about a pastor, who departed from truth, and has an “inclusive” message, where he believes everybody is saved anyway.  And where he did not believe there was a hell.  And that message is so wrong.  But I can only imagine when he meets a searching soul, who believes that nonsense, he will be used by the devil to deceive that soul.  And the movie was good, but it lacked strong conviction, that this pastors message is wrong.  As I viewed it, it comes from a place where its sympathetic.  And sympathy is nice, but he still needs to see, his message misleads.  And he is the blind leading the blind.  He does become branded a Heretic.  But its so vague, that only one who truly knows truth, could discern, the difference.  

The movie is entitled:  Come Sunday, if you are interested, in seeing it, and by what I share with you, maybe you can relate.  Because if you saw someone standing by hells fire, you need to shout to them to repent, and get away from it.  Because hell is real. 

Maybe this is why I write.  Because I see so many fall for false prophets, and their lies.  They believe the wolves in sheeps clothing.  

I want to warn you, now, to search for God yourself.  Don’t let your mind, soul, spirit be swayed by lies, or part truth, and part lies.  You need to search for God yourself.  So you can know.  Religion, will not do that.  

Its a turn off to many.  And I understand it.  The worst kind, of religion, is when someone says they are a Christian, but they twist, and manipulate, pick and choose the scriptures they want, but leave out everything else God says.  Religion.  Rules made by men or women, to justify what they want you to think.  And its wrong. 

I have been seeing so many wolves in sheeps clothing, if you see some of my writings, lately, and what I have been writing, you can tell, I have been watching some in the body of Christ, who call themselves “Christians” and they have religion, instead of taking the truth of the gospel, and applying it to bring truth, to even those who would even listen to them.

So, if I was searching, which I am not, because I know truth, to set me free.  One could be turned off, by these phony prophets, these phony Christians, and one might totally reject God, and thats so wrong.  

I know the difference between religion and relationship, and I have relationship with Christ, by what He did on that cross, by my King James bible, and through prayer.   By seeing, I needed to repent.  By seeing, I need to fear God, and try to obey Him.

I am not searching, because I know God, according to my King James bible, by my own trial and error, and by repenting, clearing the slate.   I know, because I do fear God, and thats something that keeps me out of hot water.  But I search for my Lord daily, and that is where I know the difference.  I know His voice, and to another, I will not follow.  

AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE.  AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS.  

JOHN 10:4-5  King James.  

Look, I don’t know who my audience is here.  But don’t let religion, or false prophets, or mean spirited Christians turn you off from God.  Don’t stop searching for God.  

You may have met someone who turned you off totally in this great quest for God, that you believe, that people who have “religion” have traits, that have shocked your senses.  And that we are all the same.  We are not!  

And you don’t want anything to do with them.  I understand that.  I stay away from them too.  But I do search for God, and He and I share, and I understand, what His truth is.  You need truth, friend.  

Don’t search for religion friend.  Search for God, search for the relationship you can obtain, by truly searching for the King of Kings.   Like I said, in my last post, about Joyce Meyers, one should follow Christ.  Never a person. 

I would start by just a prayer.  Repenting, admitting, your sins.  Asking God to cleanse your soul, asking God to forgive you.  Telling, God you want to love truly, based on who He is, not what someone has told you.  Or implemented as a rule for you.  

See there are rules and regulations, His commandments and laws, and if you want to please God, you need to see yourself what they are, so you have to search.  Don’t deny the law.  Don’t listen to messages that tell you that you don’t need the law.  We do.  

I recommend a King James bible.  For holiness.  Those that read my writings, know, I promote this very much.  Because I have seen the corruption, the compromising of changing the word, so it deceives.  So use only a King James bible.

Pray to Him daily.  And I also believe in daily repentance to God.  Every day, we can sin, if we don’t repent.  This keeps the slate clean. Talk to Him.  He is your greatest friend.  He will never leave or forsake you.  He will be there, but you have the responsibility of maintaining the relationship yourself.  

You need to keep it up, or you will get cold.  If you have gotten cold, repent, start over, and begin maintaining the relationship with all your heart, soul and mind.

IMG_0012  

Grow, love, and always remember what Christ did for you on the cross, is not religion, but relationship, so you can be right before the Father, God almighty.  

Yes, I understand how religion can turn people off.  But you have a duty for your own soul, to search for God, in this thing called relationship.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ…..

DISCOVERING THE JOY FROM DEPRESSION ON RESURRECTION SUNDAY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2198.jpgDISCOVERING THE JOY FROM DEPRESSION ON RESURRECTION SUNDAY (EASTER) By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

SURELY HE HATH BORN OUR GRIEFS, AND CARRIED OUR SORROWS:  YET WE DID ESTEEM HIM STRICKEN, SMITTEN OF GOD, AND AFFLICTED. BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES, THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM; AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.  Isaiah 53:4-5. KJV.  

I was depressed, beginning Good Friday.  It was a different kind of depression.  I was so sorry, for my past sins, sins, I have repented for.  I was depressed for lost time.  

I was so depressed, that I got off of Social media, early that day, even though, I do get off, for Sabbath, which starts Friday evening.  I got off social media, early in the morning.  I was challenged.  

I was troubled, I felt like the things I saw, and viewed on Fb, etc.  Were so negative.  So, challenging.  I saw spiritual leaders, proclaiming things like hell wasn’t even there, and it just angered me.  I knew, I could not stay on line, with all the things I was seeing, it bothered me.  It depressed me.  I want to be a good example, but if I had stayed on, I probably would have gotten into an argument.  I had to quiet my soul, my spirit…

Because it was as if the enemy, was laughing, and it made me sense, to know, that we are in end times.  It is a lost world out there.  And when I see, even good natured Christians, so oblivious, to the times, I just want to scream out, can’t you see, there are lost souls out there?  What can we do?  Jesus died for our sins.  

And rather then argue, or make anybody feel bad, or angry, I just got off line.  

It made me think of how the disciples must have felt, after our Lord Jesus, was crucified. They must have felt hopeless, they must have felt so discouraged.  How could they have hope in His resurrection?  They did not know that He would arise from the dead?  Or did they?

FOR AS YET THEY KNEW NOT THE SCRIPTURE, THAT HE MUST RISE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD.  JOHN 20:9  KJV.  

 What about doubting Thomas?  He did not believe.

JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, THOMAS BECAUSE THOU HAST SEEN ME, THOU HAST BELIEVED:  BLESSED ARE THEY THAT HAVE NOT SEEN, AND YET HAVE BELIEVED.  JOHN 20:29  KJV.  

How can we believe?  How can we trust God?  Well, from my own experiences.  I just have a sense to know, there is no other option but to believe.  And to trust God.  For me anyway. I have to try and obey, and I have to try and serve God with all my being.  I have to watch my step, and my love walk.  I have to remember Gods power, and to have fear of God.  I have to remember always the sacrifice of Christ.  

I grieved this weekend.  It was a very strange sense of depression I had.  I felt pretty hopeless, to be honest.  I am not going to lie.  There are factors in my life, that just don’t seem to find resolution, or healing in, and I actually felt this week, that the enemy mocked me, laughed at me, and told me, “I have stolen so much from you.”  I hate thieves.   I hate what they represent.  Anyway, hate is such a strong word, but I hate what the devil has stolen from me.  

But I did have a sense of hope, to know only God, can restore.  So I prayed…

This has helped me.  

Today, Resurrection Sunday, I did not go to church.  I don’t have a church to go to.  But, I woke up with some joy.  I woke up, knowing that today is the day, the Lord has made, and I will rejoice in it.  I woke up, knowing that Christ has risen.  I woke up, knowing the disciples saw Christ again, and were joyful, and their sorrow, sadness, depression, was changed that Resurrection Sunday, because of Christ.  

I felt the Holy Spirit whisper to me….  

“Find joy, in the little things.”

So profound, but it stirred my spirit up.  The little things, the little things, that do bring me joy.  Oh I could say them, even here, but I don’t want you to confuse my “Little things” with your little things, or big things for that matter.  

Because we are all different.  We all have different lifestyles, experiences, hardships, and well comparing is never good.  

But we must be united in that love.  That love that binds us closer to Christ.  Christ said, in John 13:35 KJV.  Thats how they will know we are his disciples, by the love we have, and for one another.

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.   

Love is not a little thing, but beginning to love, as small as it is, for whatever reason, can make it bigger. 

So, I have a different perspective, this morning. My Lord, has taken my griefs, and sorrow, and healed my spirit.  

This Resurrection Sunday.  I just have a sense, that small things can grow into big things.  But, I am not looking at that, I think I am just searching to find the beauty and joy, in just what Christ has given me, provided for me, shown me, and revealed who He is in these matters.  I just know, I fall short of His glory.  I just know, I am imperfect, and have flaws.  I just know, only He can heal me, save me, and bless me.  

So, I am sharing.  I am sharing, what has blessed me, as I am so grateful for my Salvation.  You know, Salvation, is such a gift, its a big gift, one should never take for granted.  But, having the realization that I was a sinner, long ago, and just accepting Christ as my savior, repenting, may be a small thing to some, but as small as that awakening was, it is, the biggest thing, I could do for my life.  

I am grateful.  I am finding joy, in the small things in life…..

Life is too short my friends, to be depressed.  To be sorrowful, to let the enemy steal our joy.  When Christ paid the biggest sacrifice for our sins, He paid the penalty for our sins.  Thats a big thing……  I never want to take for granted what He did on the cross for me.  

Because He told me in my spirit, this morning to “find joy, in the little things.”  I intend to do so, to be mindful, to look for the little things, so I can have hope.  

Blessings and love,

GOD IS NOT MOCKED THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FORGIVENESS AND RESPECT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


P1010003.jpg

As God is my example, of course I forgive. I release the poison. I will not keep it in my heart. I will obey God.

But as God is my example, I do not tolerate disrespect. GOD IS NOT MOCKED. I release the disrespect and the mockery, and I stand my ground. I take back my respect from anybody who tries to steal it.

Disrespect is a form of mockery, and if my Lord, does not tolerate it, why should I? I don’t have to, and I can keep my peace and walk away.

It does not mean I do not forgive it means, I know who I am in Christ.

BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP. FOR HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION: BUT HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING. AND LET US NOT BE WEARY IN WELL DOING; FOR IN DUE SEASON WE SHALL REAP IF WE FAINT NOT. AS WE HAVE THEREFORE OPPORTUNITY, LET US DO GOOD UNTO ALL MEN, ESPECIALLY UNTO THEM WHO ARE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH.
GALATIANS 6:7-10 KJV.

I hope these thoughts will encourage someone.  You see, long story short, if you have ever been disrespected by someone, it feels like they have taken something away from you.  And its hard to regain trust, or even a sense of confidence, when you allow someone to do that.  Even after you forgive.  But Christ did not tell us, to trust someone who does that.  

It has happened to me a few times, and even by family members.  So recently when an offense occurred between me and a former friend, I knew I could not allow it.  And I hate to say former, but right now, it does not look good.  I will always care though for this person.  

I had tried to extend grace, but that same grace was not extended to me.  I called it for what it was.  Respect.  Respect was not given to me.  I was being snubbed and ignored.  And I took my respect back.  

I walked away.  And sometimes you have to do that.  The sad thing, is, I love the person.  But this person, would not give me the courtesy, that I extended.  And it took me a while.  To see, it, but really I see and believe God showed me.  

I was in a spiritual battle for over two weeks, and I was trying to keep communication opened, but it was closed shut in my face.  The Lord showed me this person was given to change.  Said one thing, but yet, was being offended with me, and it just did not make sense.

MY SON, FEAR THOU THE LORD, AND THE KING:  AND MEDDLE NOT WITH THEM THAT ARE GIVEN TO CHANGE.  Proverbs 24:21.  KJV. 

This person was given to change.  The actions, the “heartfelt intentions” this person said they had, did not match the actions.

I think it took me a while because sometimes, you don’t see it.  Its subtle, its in subliminal ways, that people treat you, that may be indirect, but keep you puzzled.  Or frustrated, because you cannot resolve issues.  This is where I was with this person.  But I did not see it, because love and friendship should be gracious.  Should be kind, it should be honorable.  I gave it, in grace.  But grace was not extended to me.  

But if you are tolerated, and not celebrated.  Look and see the signs.  Its not in the gift one gives, but in the respect.  

You need to see what people really mean, by their actions.  Not so much their words.  But their actions.  Silence is not always golden, my friend.  

And if you are an opened book, like I am.  You expect someone to be honest, and opened with you.  Respect yourself, and reject anybody who will not respect you.  Anyone who tries to control you, by that is using manipulation.  And the KJV scriptures talk about that, as being like witchcraft.  Nope walk away.  

Remember its not just about forgiving.  Its about knowing who you are in Christ.  He did not call us to become door mats, or someones stepping stone.  Yes, forgive so the poison, will not penetrate you.  But respect yourself enough, to walk away.  Know who you are in Christ.  Put on your armor of God, and walk away.  Quench those fiery darts, by His love.  

I hope this helps someone.  

Blessings, and love,

DO NOT LET PEOPLE INTIMIDATE YOU GOD WILL DEAL WITH THEM ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 3I feel led to write to someone, to comfort them, to warn them, to encourage them.   Do not let people intimidate you.  God will deal with them.  God is not a respecter of persons, He loves us all.  But God will protect you, from unjust harm.  Trust Him.  

For, there are many King James scriptures that tell us about our enemies.  And there are many scriptures that tells us what happens to the wicked:

That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; Genesis 22:17  KJV.  

But if thou shalt indeed obey His voice, and do all that I speak then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.  Exodus 23:22.  KJV  

The Lord preserveth all them that love him:  but all the wicked will he destroy.  Psalms 145:20  KJV.

But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of the lambs:  they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.  

Psalm 37:20  KJV.

I am a warrior.  I learned to be that way, because of the own people I dealt with growing up.  I did not have  brothers or sisters.  To protect me.  But I had to fight.  

I fought….In the business world, and even here on social media.  And there are people, who only want to intimidate you, fight you, argue with you, and try to make you feel uncomfortable, or sad.  

Thats their agenda.  I stay clear from those kind of people.  I won’t sit with the scorner.  I won’t even try to let them think I agree with them, when I don’t.  If someone cusses at me, they lose me, in even trying to communicate.  I won’t go to that level.  

Whether its in politics, or in religion, or in the work place. Or even your neighborhood.   The jealousy, prejudice, or pure ignorance, the rudeness, that blinds them, will try and intimidate you.

There are people, no matter how hard you try to get a long with them.  Their venom will come out.  

And I do recommend trying to get along with people.  In fact pray for them.  Walk in love anyway, as Christ commanded us.    

But it seems, no matter what you try to do, they will fight you, argue with you, or try to intimidate you.  

Don’t let that spirit cripple you.  This is a trap from the enemy.  To believe a lie, or to stop you from being fulfilled in the promises of God.  Trust God. 

Maintain your courage, and just know, God is on your side.  Just know, there are angels that are dispatched, for you.  Trust God.  Let this thing that the enemy is trying to use against you, make you stronger.  

Its sad, because I personally have seen people, use something about a person, even personally to make them feel uncomfortable. As if they were superior.  And they will try to manipulate you to think you are not worthy.  

And I guess, even in writing this.  Because I know.  Whatever it is you may have, as a handicap, or as something that makes you feel inferior.  Even your race.  Which should not even be a factor, but because racism and hate is prevalent, they will try and make you feel inferior.  

God can use that, and teach you, how to be stronger, even for someone else.  You can get courage.  You can speak truth.  You can be someone who can rise above it.  

Yes, there are some battles that are not meant for us to fight.  And you need to ask God for wisdom.  

And I myself, pray every day for wisdom in such matters.  Because I have as a fighter been involved in things that I should not.  

But, yet, there is something in me that rises up against evil.  Or against, an injustice to someone else.  Or to an accuser, who is so hateful.  That you tell them.  Knock it off.  And you tell them about their own indiscretions, since they want to make you feel unworthy.  Especially here on social media.  

Where people, will say things, do things, that they would not in public.  But something about being behind a computer, they get courage, to be rude and mean, and try to intimidate you.  Don’t let them.  If you know truth, stand… be still, and Know He is God.  

Look, in life, we will meet the good, the bad, and the ugly.  But don’t be a part of the ugly, or the bad, because you yourself, have been hurt, or intimidated  by someone else.  

Turn it around, whatever wound you have.   Whatever that makes you inferior.  Whatever it is that may have  broken you even in your heart, and life.  And just give it to God.  

God will fight your enemies for you.  I have seen this in my own life.  I have seen God deal with people who have hurt me, and He has punished them.  See they have no idea, especially if you are a Christian, what God will do with them.  But they will reap what they sow.  They have no idea who God is.  

And its sad, because if we all would just see, how frail we are.  If we could just see that their is an enemy.  We would humble ourselves, and bow down, and give God glory, because there is nothing impossible with God.  We would all be kinder, to each other, we would walk in love.  

If all of us would just even apologize, for being sometimes being rude, or insensitive.  We might soothe the beast.  A soft word, turns away anger….

Because we are all capable of that.  See we never know what someone else is going through.  And when people are mean, or cruel, and they have burdens, sadness, God sees.  And it grieves Him, when they are trying to intimidate His child.  He will have His vengeance.  But maybe he is trying for you to see why that person is mean.  Pray for them. 

I just pray, for whoever is reading this, that is feeling intimidated.  Pray, give your whole being to God.  Repent, yourself for even your part in it, if there is…..because maybe you are reaping, what you sowed.  Now you are getting the tail end of it.  

But, stay humble in the sight of God.  Do whats right.  Do not take matters, in your hand that would cause you to lose your right standing with God.  Let God deal with them.  But don’t let them intimidate you.  Just know who you are in Christ.  You are victorious.  You are Gods child, precious, and beautiful in His sight, and He loves you.  That should be enough right now to comfort you, and to pray…..  

Don’t forget to use a King James Bible to search for your scriptures.  For holiness, and anointing, that the others do not give.  

Please share this post, maybe you will help someone who needs to see this.  And may God bless you for doing that.  

This is His promise from the King James:  

And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.  Jeremiah 15:21  KJV.  

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez 

HOW TO BE HAPPY WITH A VISION FROM GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2616HOW TO BE HAPPY WITH A VISION FROM GOD….

I want you to see yourself happy with a vision from God.

And sometimes, we just have to see what King James word says.

You know, so many teachings, have perverted what Paul said, that we are not to keep the law. That grace covers it.

And it has bothered me from time, to time, because there are so many scriptures that tell us to keep the “law.”

This particular scripture tells us if we want to be happy, we have to keep the law. Look it up, from a King James. Proverbs 29:18.

See yourself happy, as the vision. Claim it in Jesus name….

And take the commandments, to heart, try to obey them.

Repent, if you know you have not. Including just believing the lie, that we are not to keep the law.
